Newly appointed Harambee stars tactician Sebastien Migne has revealed his 24 man squad to play in friendly matches against Swaziland and Equatorial Guinea slated for May 25 and 28.

A further nine players have also been named in the reserves for standby purposes just in case a member of the 24 gets injured or withdraws from the squad.

The Frenchman will be without Girona hitman Michael Olunga who excused himself from the squad due to a clash of the two fixtures with prior club arrangements.

 “We had called Olunga but had to replace him when it became evident he would not make it for the two matches,” Migne said.

“We however expect him to be part of the squad that will travel to India for the Hero Intercontinental Cup scheduled to begin on June 1, 2018,” he added.

The team reports to camp on Monday at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies, with friendlies set to be played at the Moi international Sports Centre, Kasarani.
